Roadside Dumplings Print

This print relates to a time when I was a little hungover in a traffic jam in Beijing. While we sat still among the idling cars, our stomachs rumbling, I noticed lots of drivers just abandoning their vehicles and making their way somewhere between the cars. It was then I noticed a big hole in the wall, on the side of the road, billowing out steam.

This was their destination. In a moment of hunger fueled decisiveness I went to investigate. When I peered through I saw giant reed basket stuffed with steamed dumplings. In seconds I had a plastic tray of 10 or so thrust in my hands, I paid and before my friends even had time to notice I was a back. The best dumplings I have had, and possibly the most unexpected place to find them.
